The Fantasy of Flight Museum in Polk City, Florida, houses the largest private aviation collection worldwide. Most of the over 90 aircraft on display, such as this Catalina, are kept airworthy and can be marveled at in the skies at a regular basis.

Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina

Designed to replace the Martin P3M, the PBY Catalina was first flown on March 28th, 1935. This aircraft is a long range patrol flying boat, one of the most rugged and versatile aircraft in U.S. history. Its long range assisted in the location and attack of enemy transport ships. A great advantage of flying boats is that they need no runway, however later PBY variants incorporated retractable landing gear, allowing for amphibious operation from land or water. Even today—more than seventy years after its first flight—the PBY continues to fly as an air tanker in firefighting operations throughout the world.
